I missed yesterday, and while I was in the middle of today’s entry I relized it was going to take too long to post today. So I have to get something in so I don’t end up needing to make up two days.
Think quick Kristiane…gotta make a post…it’s November…LIGHTBULB! November Rain!
Oh Guns n Roses, you never fail to deliver. Well in the 90s you didn’t, now you are off the radar.
There has always been great and terrible music. Any level headed person can see this. But, as I was re-watching the video for November Rain this evening, I decided that while your generation, if it is indeed different than my own, may have or have had great music…it will never be as great as the generation of those who came of age listening to Guns N Roses. Not solely because of Axel and his kin, though they are a good part of it. However (and as I said, there’s great music from all eras) the top 40 music from 1985-1995 is far superior to, in my ever so humble opinion, all other Top 40 decades. Ever. It’s more diversive, it’s more artistic, we had freaking amazing MTV videos to go along with the songs etc. And we had Guns n Roses.
I may or may not have just spent the better of two hours watching old songs on YouTube. If I had, it would have reminded me that on any given afternoon when school let out I could watch MTV and see a video by Guns n Roses sandwiched between Dr. Dre and Deee-Lite.
I’ll be back tomorrow with something longer and less divisive. But let’s do one more, it’ll be fun:
